    Clause 15: To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

    Clause 16: To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

    Is this the US armed forces we have to day? Going by the traditional definition as written this would mean us. Looks like the government has failed to train us. I don't think the 2nd ammendment wil ever be enforceful unless all the provisions of the constitutions are enforced.
